Greetings and salutations from Nawlinâ€™s! It has been a whirlwind week and an eventful few days. For the first time inâ€¦ever, Iâ€™m giving you a short post.
Why, you ask? Well, Iâ€™m trying to make some headway on this final paper seeing as it is due on Sunday and I fly out on connecting flights at the ass crack of dawn and may not be entirely coherent when I get home to do all this work. Also, I plan on spending my Sunday cuddling, hugging and kissing the frog princess. Suddenly, I have a very ridiculous mama bear need to have her in my arms. Perhaps itâ€™s the awesome Britax products on display here at the conference that are making this happen.
This morning I had a chance to listen to Ted Rubin (@TedRubin) speak passionately about return on relationships (#RonR). Itâ€™s great to find someone who understands this. A while ago I added â€œrelationship managementâ€ to my resume because I feel very strongly that, at the end of the day, thatâ€™s what it comes down to. Organic, authentic relationships that you can build on and expand upon with time.
This afternoon I had a chance to eat some wonderful food and participate in a lunch time discussion about women leaders in technology led by Kate Berg, president of Collective Bias.
And now? I want to desperately be in the next session hearing my Twitter friend @MamaDweeb speak but instead, Iâ€™m being responsible and hitting up my class discussion boards so that I am not dinged for lack of participation and making some headway on this 10-page paper. I wish I could throw caution to the wind and just soak up all of this information that can only ever be found when you are face-to-face with your bloggy friends. But alas, I wouldnâ€™t be a Niche Mommy if I ignored my responsibilities and just did what my heart desired.
Right now, itâ€™s totally desiring a nap. Especially because itâ€™s raining softly outside. But I wonâ€™t. Iâ€™ll be sure to take awesome pics for you all (if I remember). Head on over to Twitter and Instagram to follow all of my shenanigans.
Til next time, I leave you with the view from my window. I want to take more pics of that church. Isnâ€™t it beautiful?
